Dallas, TX – June 11, 2018 - Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, has expanded its partnership with Weathermatic, the leading provider of water-conserving technology and services, to bring smart irrigation and water management to Associa communities in order to save water, increase cost efficiency and make a global difference.
The partnership offers an exclusive smart irrigation upgrade program to Associa communities and residents. This valuable program allows technology upgrades at a fraction of the cost, dramatically reduces water usage, saves money and transforms lives by sharing the savings, gallon-for-gallon, through the “Save Water I Give Life” global water cause.
“Water is one of the top expenses for a managed community. This smart irrigation upgrade is an opportunity for Associa communities to not only save residents money but to be a part of a water-conserving initiative that completely changes the way we affect the environment,” stated Patrick Brensinger, Associa president and chief operating officer. “We are always investing in new ways to help our communities grow and be more sustainable, and what better way than to reduce water waste and lower water expenses, all while helping the environment.”
“Associa is an industry leader and manages thousands of communities across North America; the majority of those communities have irrigation systems. Statistics show that up to 70 percent of a community’s water usage comes from outside irrigation and as much as 50 percent of irrigation water is wasted,” said Jamie Hahn, Weathermatic’s vice president of national accounts. “Our partnership brings smart irrigation and water management solutions to the communities they serve in order to mitigate that water waste from a fiscal as well as an environmental prospective. The goal is to dramatically reduce water usage, grow reserves and enhance each community’s landscape health and beauty while benefiting thirsty communities around the world.”
Associa’s environmental initiative, Associa Green, will also work directly with Weathermatic to combine efforts in their “Save Water I Give Life” program. This extremely successful social cause shares the savings, gallon-for-gallon, generated from client’s water conservation efforts. The gallon-for-gallon program directly benefits less fortunate communities around the world that do not have access to clean drinking water.
“Associa Green is excited to partner with Weathermatic to expand our environmental focus from green to blue and help communities around the world receive clean water,” stated Andrew Fortin, Associa senior vice president, external affairs and Associa Green.
